Communal Party Music Apps

'Party King' Democratizes DJing to Crown a Spin Master

— August 25, 2017 — Tech
Music can make or break a house party, so Party King takes the pressure of DJing off of the host by gamifying music choices. The app makes music completely communal by creating a collaborative playlist that anyone at the party can add to and implementing a voting system that lets the bangers rise from the duds.

When hosting a party with Party King, the host just needs to get everyone at the party to download the app. Once in, users can join the party playlist and add their songs to the queue. Within the first thirty seconds of each song, partygoers can vote on whether the song is worth staying on. Songs that succeed with a majority play to the finish, and the user who submits the most popular songs gets dubbed king of the party.

1. Communal Music Apps - The trend of communal music apps has emerged and is disrupting the traditional DJ business model by democratizing the DJing experience for everyone at the party.
